ST17 0UW.  Facing Cannock Chase, we turn left out of the car park, cross the railway line and the river Sow to pick up the Two Saints Way just north of Tixall Bridge.  We follow this trail westward over farmland with extensive views southwards of Cannock Chase.  All the stiles are on this section.  We reach the outskirts of Stafford by the remains of St Thomas Priory.  Crossing the rivers Sow and Penk on the new Two Rivers metal footbridge, we reach the Staffs. & Worcs. Canal at St.Thomas Bridge 101.  From here we will make a slight detour westward to visit the Stafford Riverway Link restoration site at Baswich.  After a brief guided tour, we return eastwards along the towpath, which we leave at Walton Bridge. We follow a track leading us to the A513 at Berkswich, from where we return to our starting point.  Contact Clive Walker on 07866 201873 or clive.walker@waterways.org.uk
Please note the earlier meeting time of 09:45.  This is necessary due to the length of the walk, the number of stiles, and the guided tour of the Riverway Link.
